JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART #103 (A REVISIT OF #21)




Let's revisit my quiz from October 24th, 2013.
I'll post the answers tomorrow…

1. You may be surprised by the answer: what reliever had the most saves in a "perfect" season during the decade? That is, no blown saves for the year?

2. What starting pitcher had the lowest season E.R.A. while sporting a losing record during the '70's?

3. Who was the only pitcher to lead a league in E.R.A. for a season without winning 10+ games?

4. What pitcher had the highest strikeout total in a season without leading the league?

5. Who was the only pitcher during the decade to NOT have more wins than losses while leading the league in E.R.A. during the 1970's?

***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW: 

1. 1977 Dave Campbell, Atlanta Braves: 13/13.

2. Dave Roberts, San Diego Padres: 2.10 with a 14-17 record.

3. Craig Swan, NY Mets. 1979. 9-6 with a 2.43 E.R.A..

4. Vida Blue, Oakland A's. 1971. 301 K's, second to Mickey Lolich who had 308.

5. Diego Segui, Oakland A's. 1970. 10-10 record with a 2.56 E.R.A..

2 comments:

  1. Diego Segui pitched for Oakland in 1970. He had been a Pilot the year before, but he was no longer in Seattle--and, of course, neither was the team!

    1. Woops! Good Catch! Sometimes writing these things up at 5am before work is just plain wrong... ;) I had his 1970 Topps card in mind as I got the trivia together.
